♪ breaking right now. north and south korea holding emergency high level talks and comes after a week of high tensions, threats, counterthreats. can the two enemies avoid a shooting war this morning? also, exclusive images for you, as americans tackle and overpower a suspected islamist i've gunman on a train from france. today we finally see those heroic men. plus this. >> i tried to shoot him. >> he did?
3:01 am
>> yeah. >> that exclusive cell phone video as two americans and a third man take down a man with a gun on a train in paris. we will have the latest there. this is cnn breaking news! so grateful to have with you, i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. the breaking news is on the korean peninsula. kim jong-un deadline to the south expired. his ultimate stop blasting anti-pyongyang propaganda on the border or face military consequences. cnn is covering the story from all angles and starting with kathy novak there on the demilitarized zone on the mzd. kathy, what have you heard about this meeting? who is there and was is on the
3:02 am
table? >> it's a last-minute high level meeting on going right now. two representatives prosecute both sides, including from the south crean side and also known to be very close to the leader kim jong-un. as these people get toged if they can come to an arrangement to stop the buildup of tension has been going on the past couple of days, past weeks now. a lot of on hope they are able to get together and also a small sign of hope coming out of the way the state news agencies kcna even reported it. in its report, it referred to south korea as the republic of korea and usually refers to them as the puppet of the state. first time they referred to it and you have to go back a few years to find the reference of
3:03 am
republic of korea into north korea rhetoric. we mentioned this deadline and this demand from north korea from south korean to stop its broadcasting. >> kathy novak along the dmz, thank you so much. let's go now to cnn's will ripley in beijing. how on is china reacting to this, will? >> since may, china that stepped in an an intermediary given its close relationship. china in this case, though, has been noticeably disengaged when compared to previous incidents. is there a statement now just coming out from the chinese
3:04 am
foreign ministry and read a portion of it. as the korean's close neighbor, china is paying great attention to the situation and on the peninsula and is deeply concerned and china is willing to work together with all parties toward the peace and stability. a lot of analysts and watching comb spe and speculating as late. the north korea economy would not survive but politically things we are noticing. going china is holding a military parade next month and rumored that kim jong-un will attend but -- as of yet and there hasn't a lot of interaction between the leaders of the country and may explain why we are seeing a bit of a distance right now as china certainly watches this closely to see how it unfolds and urges calm and restraint.
3:05 am
>> will ripley, thank you. what are the conversations being had there where you are this morning? >> good morning. we know the joint chiefs of staff chairman general martin dempsey has spoken with his south korean counterpart. let me read from you part of the statement put out about that conversation between joint chiefs chairman demsy and his counterpart. he said the two dempsey and choi, his counterpart, concurred they would watch north korean actions closely and they would continue to work closely with one another to deter north korean provocation and deter tensions. one thing that is adding to the tension here, of course, is the
3:06 am
u.s. and south korea are right now conducting an annual joint military exercise. these are exercises that take place every year but they obseroften anger the north korean who say they are preparations for war so it is not uncommon to see north korea step up posturing during these exercises. the hope, of course, this will end up being just posturing and not lead to any further tensions or, of course, an all-out shooting war. >> very good point. athiena jones, thank you. now to retired general mark hertling. you participated in these annual military joint exercises between the u.s. and south korea. these are, of course, an ongoing point of tension. north korea believes those are provocations of war. do you think it was wise to suspend them on thursday and then to resume? >> well, i do, victor.
3:07 am
they were only suspended a short time, a few hours. i think it was a prudent measure by the admiral and this is why. when these exercises are held, there is always some sort of reaction and usually provocation by the north. it comes in many forms. it always happens every year. what was interesting this year was it was combined with an attack, a literal artillery attack on the south and i think the general made it prudent we need to suspend this. it's one thing when the military is exercising and another thing when you have potential civilian injuries because of erratic actions by the north and that could have happened very easily. as you know, seoul is a very large city and bumps up against the border and urban sprawl has carried it even closer to the border with the north the last
3:08 am
decade or so. because of that whenever artillery fire comes in from the north it can hurt the members of the army. >> reporter: they are each in a position they got into these talks, these negotiations, they have to leave with some face saving victor. wh victory. what is on the side of the table for either to willing give up? >> more attempts of face saving from the north and the south. we are always looking to gain more. whenever they need at the village right on the dmz they will always attempt to push the buttons and try to gain as much as they can from negotiations. you have to understand kim jong-un actually uses every provocation to stoke his people and the culture of the north koreans is such, they literally
3:09 am
hate the u.s. and south korea. even if we gain a small victory it means he can publicize things and show his strengths. this seems so silly. a speaker war between the north and the south but when look at the details of this and the ability of the south korean speakers to go about 6 to 12 miles into the territory, we heard the speakers on the other side aren't as powerful. they can only go about a mile in. the people of south korea realized how crazy the leader in the north is so these things are tit for tat and in the common mind it would be absolutely ridiculous but you have to remember the kju wants some type of victory so that is what this is all about. >> a war of decibels that become so much more. >> exactly. >> retired army lieutenant
3:10 am
general mark hertling, good to have you. they are called heroes who what they did to the gunman. we have exclusive pictures from inside that train as well. back in the u.s., several wildfires. many continue to rage out of control along the west coast. we have got a report for you coming up. in the south, tens of thousands turn out in laalabama. donald trump's message for hope for america, how did it all pan out? >> you look at baltimore, you look at ferguson, you look at st. louis last night over the last week, you look at all of the things that are happening. we are sitting on powder kegs. there's no spirit. there's no jobs. there's no anything. we are going to take this country. i am going to be the greatest

yeah, yeah. >> can you imagine if you had been on this train? these are incredible images we have to share with you this morning. video exclusive to cnn. these are the moments, after three quick thinking americans likely saved hundreds of lives. they subdued an attacker with a rifle on a train that was traveling from amsterdam to pair his and that attacker, we know, not only had a rifle, but also
3:15 am
had a blade and, quote, plenty of ammunition we are told. >> the picture of the three americans being called hooeroes. one sprinted toward the gunman who is blue shirt. was wounded in that struggle. they were quick to praise his bravery. >> my friend was the first one over there. even after being injured himself, he went to go help the other man who was bleeding also. without his help, he would have died. that man was bleeding from his neck like profusely and he just went over there and saved his life as he was bleeding himself. >> he ran a good ten meters to get to the guy and we didn't know his gun was working or anything like that. spencer was running any way and if anybody would have been shot it would have been spencer and we are lucky nobody got killed,
3:16 am
especially spencer. >> our senior international correspondent nic robertson is following the story from france. we know this investigation is ongoing. what have you learned? >> reporter: the belgiumians have laun belgians launched an investigation. the train was in belgium at the time and passed through a city of brussels before it came to rest here in france. we know the french interior minister has called this a barbaric vicious attack. the interior french minister is to talk about this in minutes and we may get more details on him on the investigation. the attacker a 26-year-old moroccan man who was known to officials were on their radar. spencer stone was the first to grab this gunman, he got injured.
3:17 am
injured quite significantly in his hand, we are told. local journalists here at this hospital are just outside lille, a hand specialist has talked to nurses here who says spencer is undergoing surgery on his hand at this time. this is not something that can be confirmed by the u.s. embassey here in france. he is in surgery. the investigation really, what everyone wants to know was this man a lone wolf? there were other people behind him? where did he get on the train? are there other plans for other attacks eminent. details on that perhaps coming from the french interior ministry in the next few minutes. >> nic robertson, stand by. we will get back to you with the latest as soon as we can. thank you very much.

3:23 am
put this in motion and see what happens to danny here. we lose the eye a clear indication this is continuing to weaken as it heads off to the north and west. the winds down to a hundred miles an hour. still far away from the leeward and winward islands. this is the wind sheer map. the reason it's weakening upper level winds coming in out of the south and west and disrupting the center of circulation. it's displacing the wind sheer of the thunderstorms to east here and it's not allowing danny to continue to organize. in fact, what it's doing is it's allowing for it to weaken. it also to deal with all of the this color you see here the light brown is indicative of very dry air so it is going to continue to weaken danny as it heads off to the north and west. the official forecast track has it as a tropical storm heading towards the winward and leeward islands and then to the dominican republic. i don't think we have to worry about hitting the united states as it may not survive the trip
3:24 am
across the islands. ahead, donald trump. >> who would you rather have negotiating with china, japan, mexico, any of them? trump or bush? >> he is taking his message to a crowds of tens of thousands there in mobile, alabama. but we are looking beyond the crowds to the content. the substantiveness of his message. that conversation is straight ahead. also ahead, a u.s. military air strike takes out a high level isis leader. the update in the war against terrorism is coming up. first, we take you to atlanta, georgia, to meet chef kevin gillespie. take a look what separates his cooking style from the other top

3:26 am
senses and it's exciting and you get into it. it's a show almost. it's like going to the theater. >> the theatrical experience witnesses the customer and a chance for the chef to prepare and present their dishes. for frequent patrons of gunshow it's clear the chef feels most at home in the america south. >> chicken and waffles is not a very difficult dish to sell in the deep south. even when we add the little vietnamese spin it makes it pretty popular. it's a lot of fun. i live in a city, atlanta, where you're rooted in the traditions of the deep south yet you have people from all over the world every single day here and it fields like the cuisine prepared in a city like this is one that embraces that full view. >> watch the full show at

this is cnn breaking news. >> we are following a breaking news story in the korean peninsula this morning. north and south korean officials are meeting.
3:31 am
north koreian leader kim jong-un deadline to the south expired. his propaganda is stop blasting along the border or face military consequences. cnn has a team of reporters following these talks and we will bring you all of the developments as they happen this morning. we want to talk about three americans who are being called heroes after they subdued a gunman on a paris-bound train and possibly saving hundreds of lives here. this train was in belgium when the attack started but officials there have opened an anti-terrorism investigation. one of the americans, spencer stone, is still recovering from injuries sustained in the struggle and the attacker is in police custody. we will have more on this story at the top of the hour as well. wow, wow, wow! unbelievable! unbelievable! thank you! >> friday night lights so to speak. donald trump draws a crowd of
3:32 am
30,000 supporters. you just can't help to tap your toe to that song, can you? obviously, in mobile, alabama, at that rally there. he shared the spotlight with an alabama lawmaker and get to that in a moment. cnn's ryan nobles. were they all supporters of his who were there? >> you mentioned 30,000 people were there yesterday. many lined up as early as 6:00 in the morning. i spoke to a lot of people that were in line yesterday. the vast majority who were there said they want donald trump to be their next president. this event that happened here yesterday it may have fallen short of the lofty predictions that were going to be there but it was a big event. you mentioned city officials
3:33 am
telling cnn they estimated the crowd at about 30,000, which will make it the largest event trump has held to this point and the largest of any republican candidate for president. you know, they initially said some 40,000 people had rsvp'd and they heard trump give his pretty traditional speech on the stump. issues like immigration, obamacare, the military and the billionaire's signature issue right now, jobs. >> you look at baltimore, you look at ferguson, you look at st. louis last night over the last week. you look at all of the things that are happening, we are sitting on powder kegs. there's no spirit. there's no jobs. there's no anything. we are going to take this country.
3:34 am
i am going to be the greatest jobs president that god ever created. i will tell you that. i will tell you. >> reporter: a surprise moment happened about midway through trump's speech and that is when alabama's popular senator jeff sessions came on stage with trump. now, sessions has been very complimentary of trump's plan on immigration. he stopped short on giving trump his full endorsement but he had nice things to day about the candidate. >> donald, welcome to my hometown, mobile, alabama. the american people, these people want somebody in the presidency who stands up for them, defends their interest and the laws and traditions of this
3:35 am
country. we welcome you here. thank you for the work you've put into the immigration issue. i'm really impressed with your plan. i know it will make a difference and this crowd shows a lot of people agree with that. >> joo a big target for trump last night was, of course, jeb bush, one of the other front runners in the race for president on the republican side. the bush campaign actually pushed back a super pac and flew a banner over the football stadium last night attacking trump' the campaign itself sent out an e-mail to alabama republicans yesterday accusing trump of not being a consecutive. alabama is getting live attention because it's a part of southern states who will vote very early in march, that could be crucial with so many candidates in this field. christi, scott walker, the
3:36 am
governor of wisconsin, will be in alabama tonight speaking. . >> let's talk more about trump with cnn political analyst and columnist for bloomberg view, josh rogen. good to have you on the show. >> thank you. >> what we heard from donald trump last night included some approach to foreign policy, although we have any' seen the full rollout of his foreign policy priorities, but listen to what he said in particular about japan and we will talk about that. >> we have an agreement with japan where if somebody attacks japan, we have to come to their rescue. but if we get attacked, japan doesn't have to help us. do you think that's a good deal? that is sort of like sergeant bergdahl. has anybody heard of him? the traitor. i called president obama five for one president -- >> continuing that line of criticizing the u.s. government's negotiating tactics, what does this comment
3:37 am
tell us about his foreign policy view? i know some, including yourself, i follow you on twitter, have been critical of this remark especially. >> i lived in japan and studied there two years. the alliance was struck after world war ii and dictated by the u.s. to prevent japan from fighting abroad. what trump is doing there he is criticizing the negotiating skills of the harry s. truman administration and make ago broad leap and tying it to beau bergdahl and calling him a trait. he is accused of desertion. later, trump said six u.s. soldiers died while searching for bergdahl. that is not true, right? one fell swoop, trump has attacked an ally and made an assertion about a deal that was struck in the 1940s and tied to a negotiation over an alleged deserter in 2012 and wrapped it all up in this broad criticism of the obama administration. the bottom line it doesn't make sense on its face. now does that matter? you know?
3:38 am
he is throwing a lot of red meat out to the crowd and they seem to eat it up. nobody is really criticizing him because on foreign policy, trump has the same invincible on other issues people don't spp him to be an expert so they let it slide. from the perspective of a former analyst, he is misrepresenting history. >> that goes into his views on the military in which he told an interviewer he watches the shows and that is where he gets a lot of his military advice or strategic information. you also reported that many of the other gop candidates kind of dip into the same well for foreign policy experts. are we expecting that well will be opened to donald trump or will he even go to it? >> we did some reporting on this. donald trump, when asked where he gets his foreign policy advice, he says he gets it from tv and from john bolton.
3:39 am
we followed up with john bolton and he said he never spoke with trump. trump is making it up as he goes along, right? you can see this in a lot of his speeches. when he talks about isis he wants to surround the oil and sell the oil on the market to the chinese. that doesn't really make any sense at all. at the same time, he tell a contradictory story how he is against u.s. troops going to iraq and how the iraq war was a mistake. he is not really trying to get it right. he is trying to hit big themes. he is pro israeli and against the iran deal and thinks china is eating our lunch on the financial side. there's a lot of sympathy for those positions, right? he is hitting a lot of nerves and getting a lot of sort of broad positive reaction to his criticism of the overall state of the u.s. in world affairs but none of his solutions or policies make any sense whatsoever. he is not trying really to put any meat on the bone and we are
3:40 am
not expecting him to build a robust policy platform or lay out any plans on any of the other issues he is talking about. >> you brought up china and we will have a conversation later on china's economy and we will have that conversation about the economy coming up. josh rogen, thank you so much. >> any time. the dow, worst week in several years, as it shed 500 points. we will talk more, as victor said, about what is going on there. what did baylor university know about a sar football player found guilty of sex assault before they' qir acquired him f another school? sar football player found guilty of sex assault before they acquired him from another school? tsar footba player found guilty of sex assault before they acquired him from another school? asar footba player found guilty of sex assault before they acquired him from another school? rsar footba player found guilty of sex assault before they acquired him from another school? football player found guilty of sex

the dow hit minus 500. there it is again. it continued to plunge 31 more points to end the day. >> they were applauding there mostly because they have to, but maybe because it's over. this is it. let's just get done with it. three big factors drove the sell-off we saw this week and we break it down for you. >> reporter: there is no sugar coating it. it was the worst week for stocks since 2011. friday alone was the worst loss of the year. 530-point drop on the dow and it's official the dow is in a correction and 10% decline from the recent record high and we hit that high a few months ago.
3:45 am
how quickly things have turned around. big names like starbucks, facebook, amazon are down more than 10% from their recent record highs. here is what it boils down to. the fed, the economy, and oil. first, take the global economy. china specifically, the world's second largest economy is slowing and this past week, a new report confirmed that from investors. second, we have the federal reserve. investors are expecting a rate hike next month for the first time in a decade but we are getting mixed signals from policymakers. if they hold off they might think the fed is worried about the economy. finally oil is less than $30 a barrel now and something we haven't seen since 1999. we have a glut of oil on the market and demand is slowing and roll it altogether and it spells trouble for the markets all around the world. if there is a silver lining it's this -- we are still in the midst of a very long and very

a pretty big controversy in college football. one of baylor's football recruits has been sentenced after being found guilty of sexual assault. sam ukwuachu will serve 180 days in county jail and ten years as a felony probation and 400 hours of community and registered as a sex offend. the coach art briles said he did not know of the player's background when he recruited him to baylor.
3:52 am
how is it possible they did not know? >> it's a story that, of course, is still unfolding because critics right now, want to know how he even got on campus in the first place. the 22-year-old former all-american was dismissed from boise state before transferring to baylor. he didn't play at all last season. as victor said, head coach art briles didn't say why. in the meantime, baylor has released a statement in part saying maintaining a safe and caring community is central to baylor's commission and heart of the commission to our students and faculty and staff. as of right now, that is what we have got, virg. >> we will see if we get answers coming soon. we have joey jackson with us, hln legal analyst. joey, an awful lot of criticisms about the sentence here. sam ukwuachu facing allegations.
3:53 am
the jury that convicted him only asked for probation and the judge ordered six months in jail. is this normal? >> that's right, christi. good morning to you. every case depends on the facts of that particular case. certainly when you hear the allegations concerning what happened on that october day a couple of years ago, it's very troubling and it's troubling because, apparently, the victim described being overtaken by him and many details which we won't discuss today. you look and you find out when you delve into it, allegations about his past prior to him even transfer to go baylor when he was at boise state. the jury apparently heard the case, and in hearing the case they found him guilty of that second-degree assault which amounts to rape against someone's consent and in addition to that they made the recommendation. who knows what underlie the recommendation that they ultimately made, but as you
3:54 am
mentioned, the judge felt it appropriate, although they recommended the eight years probation to give him the community service, the six months in jail, in addition to having him on probation for that period of time. >> six months for rape, joey, is that normal? >> not at all. to be clear about that, not at all. particularly when you look at the statute and the statute speaks to two years to 20 years. obviously, the statute, talking about 20 years is there for a reason. no means no obviously. when a jury convicts you of this, it means there is a finding of guilt to the underlying charges which means you force yourself upon someone without their consent. you look at the statute, 20 years and you look at what he got, six months and you look at your question in terms of normalcy, nothing too normal. >> any repercussions for the university in. >> the legal process has laid
3:55 am
itself out. number one, a university have a title nine coordinator to get those complaints. not that they didn't do it, but the issue will remain how they did it. did they conduct an adequate investigation? a lot of people would say no. why? because there is a preponderance of the evidence standard. not beyond a reasonable doubt standard as we have in court. and even under that standard, it was found that nothing, no action was taken and then you look further into it in terms of the victim, and apparently, the statute also says no retaliation. well, as allegations that her scholarship was reduce and allegations she had to transfer as a result of that. and so all of these things, title nine protects a victim from having to transfer. the victim needs to be accommodated and issues whether ukwuachu had contact with her.

4:02 am
suspected appeared to be sympathetic to isis. cnn has exclusive new video captured by one of the men who took down that gunman, showing the aftermath of this potentially deadly attack. can you see the suspect on the floor there. his hands tied behind his back and the rifle there he carried is lying next to him there on the floor of that train. these are the three men being called heroes this morning. their bravery being praised from europe to the white house. we are covering this story across the globe this morning. nic robertson is following the investigation in lille, france. nick valencia has details on the american men being praised for saving lives. nic, we know this investigation has been opened by the belgians. what else do we know? >> reporter: well, we have also heard from the french interior minister today says the belief at the moment is the suspect, the attacker is moroccan, a relatively young man and they
4:03 am
they believe he may have been living in spain last year and belgium this year. the train was en route from amsterdam on its way to pacer ren and the attack took place in belgian territory. the train brought to a halt and routed to a station here in northern france. spencer stone, who was the first of those three americans to rush towards the gunman and bring him down was injured. right now, we are told by a nurse in the hospital here he is undergoing surgery for an injury sustained to his hand. this is a specialist hand clinic that medical work going on right now, we are told. >> nic robertson is getting us the latest there from lille, trans. for more on the three americans who stepped in to take down the attacker, let's bring in nick valencia. nick, everyone hopes, if they
4:04 am
have the opportunity to prevent an attack they will summon the courage to do it. >> this could have gone the other way and could have been a big carnage there, no doubt about that. this all started on friday there in europe. high-speed train speeding from amsterdam to paris, france. these three americans were in europe to visit friends. they say they were sitting on that train when they noticed a train conductor running through that carriage and behind him was a man shirtless with a rifle over his shoulder. they describe what happened at the time of this incident. >> really proud of my friend that he just reacted so quickly and so bravely. he was really the first one over there. even after being injured himself, he went to go help the other man who was bleeding also. without his help, he would have
4:05 am
died. that man was bleeding from his neck profusely. >> the amount of blood he was losing. >> he went over there and saved his life as he was bleeding himself. >> spencer ran a good ten meters to get to the guy and we didn't know that his gun wasn't working or anything like that. spencer just ran any way and if anybody would have gotten shot, it would have been spencer for sure and we are very lucky that nobody got killed, especially spencer. >> just incredible there. >> reporter: that description of what happened, they were casual about it actually. that press conference we licensed to a while ago. one guy said he was in europe for the first time and he ends up stopping a terrorist and spencer stone is recovering in the hospital. he nearly lost his thumb. he was also stabbed in the neck by a box cutter by that suspected terrorist. he is expected to make a full recovery. he is a member of the u.s. air force and another one of those americans alex scarlotos, a national guardsman, they are credited for stopping what could
4:06 am
have been a major terrorist attack. >> nick valencia, thank you very much. the korean peninsula we may soon know if an all-out war is starting. this is after north korean dictator kim jong-un threatened the south if they didn't stop the two loud speakers on the border. the u.s. and china monitoring this situation closely. we begin with kathy novak who is near the demilitarized zone near exactly where these talks are being held. what have you heard so far this morning? >> reporter: christi, remember, these are two countries still technical at war. they have no diplomatic relation so it is important that they have agreed to hold these meetings, high-level talks. two representatives from both sides the head of national security from south korea, and his north korean counterpart and
4:07 am
the head of the political bureau of the korean peoples army a man said to be close to kimjong-un. we will wait to see if they can come together and reach an agreement. it would involve someone making some kind of concession and stepping back because it has been this game of brinkmanship the past few days with this deadline coming and going for pyongyang. it said south korea had to stop the broadcast of the loud broadcast on the borders. south korea is continuing those broadcasts that so anger north korea. this is the situation now. a small sign of hope is being read into the way that north korea reported the fact this meeting was happening at all. the official news agency kcna referred to south korea as the republic of korea. a state news agency calls at the
4:08 am
time puppet state or regime. we are hoping a small sign maybe things will calm down here on the peninsula. but certainly no sign of that just yet. still a very tense situation. >> kathy, what do you think each side needs to come away with in order to save face, so to speak? >> reporter: well, that is the big question really. when we are talking about these propaganda speakers, it is the issue of saving face. these propaganda speakers are poking fun, basically, at the regime of king jong m jong-un. he is treated like a god and people are told he is a god more so than a leader and certainly they are fed their own diet of propaganda in the form of television and radio and being told what to think. so the fact that another government could be deliberately broadcasting anti-regime
4:09 am
messages into north korea is something that really makes them angry. so they can't seem to be putting up with this. on the other hand, south korea is under a lot of pressure not putting up with provocation on north korea. two of its soldiers almost died of this land mine attacks and pressure here in the south korea for the government not to put up that provocation. whether either side will back down we have to wait and see but the big question. >> the big question if they don't come to some solution, what happens at that point? kathy novak, we appreciate it and thank you. athena jones is joining us live with the latest from the washington. we know u.s. and china is watching this situation very closely. there are 28,000 troops stationed in south korea from the u.s. what are the conversations that reasonable care had in washington this morning over
4:10 am
th this. >> reporter: good morning. those u.s. troops are a big part of this. we know general martin dempsey spoke with his counterpart about this last night. the u.s. and south korea important allies -- of u.s. in the region. i want to read for you part of the statement put out about that conversation. dempsey and general admiral choi said they would watch north korea's actions the coming days and assure the u.s. and republic of korea to work closely with each other to diffuse tensions. part of this tension is the fact that the u.s. and south korea are in the middle of their annual joint military exercises. these take place every year and every year, they anger the north koreans. i want to play for you what the assistant secretary of defense david sheer had to say about those exercises. take a listen. >> u.s. forces went on an
4:11 am
enhanced status as part of the exercise. they are remaining in enhanced status as part of the exercise. and, of course, to ensure adequate deterrence on the peninsula. >> shear and dempsey emphasized this. the exercises were temporarily suspended just so that the u.s. and south korea could coordinator on that change of artillery fire that took place at the dmz, the demilitarized zone. those exercises have since restarted. but, again, as i said, north korea is always angered by these exercises and see them as preparations for war, so it's not unusual to see them step up propaganda, provocations and posturing and threats each time those exercises occur. of course, the hope now is that an all-out shooting war can be avoided and this brinksmanship can come to an end. >> thank you very much.

back now to our breaking news on the ongoing standoff in the korean peninsula this hour. troops are bracing for all-out war here. top level officials from north and south korea holding high-level talks in that demilitarized zone. the sides have been racing to end the standoff that took a frightening step thursday when the north exchanged fire with the south over the heavily forty i have had dmz area separating the two. joining us is cnn military analyst and retired army lieutenant general mark hertling and gordon forbes and author of "nuclear showdown." lieutenant general, you participated in these annual joint military exercises between the u.s. and south korea that really north korea claims started this whole thing.
4:17 am
they see it as a precursor to war, these drills. and we know that is the point of ongoing contention there. north korea's regime is known for being thin-skinned, fond of saber rattling, let's say, and he made a lot of threats over there. what do you see in this particular case that might feel different this time around? because this kind of conflict between north and south is not unusual. >> well, the most important thing, christi, is this time around, there has been the actual naming of south korean soldiers and the potential for take ago live with artillery shoots. there has always been a propaganda war when these exercises take place. there is always things back and forth between the north and the south. in this case it actually resulted in two soldiers being ruineded and more artillery falling in the south. >> gordon, you say things are different for the u.s. tooth time around because of north
4:18 am
korea's relationship with china? >> yes. right now, we did not get up on the phone to call beijing and say, please rein in your north korean ally. because kim jong-un, starting in september of 2013, deliberately cut the civilian-to-civilian diplomatic contacts. the execution of a four-tar general made it clear he wants to cult the military-to-military ties. that means north korea is on its own. we don't have the ability to influence china, to influence north kor north korea. that is a concern of course, for us. >> a mystery here, general, in kim jong-un. is it more dangerous because he is more unknown than his father was? >> west not only more unknown, although he is becoming more and more known throughout the world recently because of some of his very erratic action, but he is young and he is somewhat inexperienced. when you put someone like that in a position where a lot of
4:19 am
military leaders around him want to please him and he wants to prove himself, not only to his military leaders as being forceful, but also to the population as being someone who is contributing to the defense of north korea and, again, the propaganda is always that the south and america are trying to attack the north. he might do some irrational things and it becomes a free floating electron here and we doo don't have a history knowing what he is going to do in a situation like this. that is the difference between what is occurring now and in the past. >> the thing that cannot be overlooked certainly is that north korea is a nuclear-armed regime. does the u.s. and u.s. allies have a good gauge of what the capabilities of north korea? >> well, our assessments are certainly more optimistic than the chinese who believe that the north koreans ans have a bigge
4:20 am
arsenal. what concerns me is kim jong-un executing at least 85 senior officials since december of 2011 and probably killing 300 to 400 junior officials as well. many of the people who have been executed have been generals, which means there is a struggle between the kim family and the korean peoples familiar. that is a whole concept of a free floating electron is a real problem because we don't know what is going on in pyongyang at this particular time but we know it's steadily and that is not a good sign. >> soccer players and coaches were in north korea and how troubling is that in the midst of these talks? >> exchanges are going on all the time close to the border where they are having youth go across and, in some cases, farmers going across to the north to farmland, so it always becomes problematic when you
4:21 am
have population base from the other side going over. they certainly could become hostages in one way or another. that is not the most troublesome thing and i think mr. chan brings it up. if you're a north korean general and seen your friends executed for maybe given bad advice, you're going to hesitate in terms of the advice that you're going to give the young great leaders too. so, again, this is zoisolation a very young leader who is trying to gain the well and popularity of his population and it's very difficult, troublesome and also very dangerous. >> hard to gaengage how what dor how he'll do it. s so appreciate your voices on this, gentlemen. thank you. >> thank you. north carolina a mistrial for a cop in the shooting death of a former college football player led to this. take a look at the video. protests there in the state.

31 past the hour right now. donald trump drew a crowd of 30,000 supporters during a rally in mobile, alabama. look at this. >> wow, wow, wow! unbelievable. unbelievable! thank you. >> one city official called it the greatest event mobile has ever put on besides mardi draw.
4:32 am
in the meantime, during his stop, trump spoke about recent controversy and his opponents and shared the spotlight with an alabama lawmaker. ryan noboles was there. who showed up? what was your take? >> reporter: certainly there were people there just to see donald trump because he is a celebrity, maybe to gawk a little bit, but they were very positive, and the lion's share of the people in this crowd yesterday had to be his supporters. i talked to many people here sho who said they view him as a serious candidate and they truly want him to be the next president of the united states. you can't ignore this crowd that was here last night. this is the biggest rally that has been held to this point in the campaign for president. keep in mind, we are more than a year away before voters go to the polls in the general election. we are still several months away before the first primary takes
4:33 am
place. now, it was a typical trump rally. a long rambling speech at times. but very rowdy reception from the crowd that was listening to him. one of the surprise moments of the night, though, was when alabama's popular senator jeff sessions came on to the stage. now sessions has been a supporter of donald trump's plan for immigration. in fact, he helped trump draft that plan for a certain degree. he stopped short of giving trump his full endorsement, but he had many positive things to say about the candidate. >> donald, welcome to my hometown, mobile, alabama. the american people, these people want somebody in the presidency who stands up for them, defends their interest and the laws and traditions of this country. we welcome you here. thank you for the work you've
4:34 am
put into the immigration issue. i'm really impressed with your plan. i know it will make a difference and this crowd shows a lot of people agree with that. >> reporter: sessions even out put on the make america great again hat for a very brief moment while he was on stage. as for trump's speech itself, he did not back away from any of the controversial statements he has made up upon this point. he talked about his term anchor baby and made strong statements about immigration and obamacare and his situation on the campaign trail which has been jobs. >> you look at baltimore. you look at ferguson. you look at st. louis last night. over the last week. you look at all of the things that are happening. we are sitting on powder kegs. there's no spirit. there's no jobs.
4:35 am
there's no anything. we are going to take this country. i am going to be the greatest jobs president that god ever created. i will tell you that. i will tell you. >> reporter: alabama has become a pretty popular state for republicans, probably because it will now be an early primary state and they vote with a group of southern states in march which will be very crucial, especially with so many candidates come in this field. wisconsin governor scott walker will be here in alabama tonight. >> ryan nobles, appreciate it very much. thank you. let's talk about this with republican strategy and a democratic strategy. good morning to both of you. we heard trump say he will be the best jobs president god ever created. he also talked about his book, "the art of the deal." but said we will take the bible over that. and started i know how billy
4:36 am
graham feels. how is this received? he is opening up religion or is this perceived as something else? >> well, look. i think that donald trump, you know, obviously, has this bombastic personality that people respect. here is the thing. republicans have an incredibly deep bench right now. we have 16 other candidates that are running right now. look. i think the support we are seeing that is because of this distribution among those candidates but, look. donald trump should be talking about jobs. you look the latest poll numbers from cnn about president obama's approval ratings, the majority of the country believes the country is heading on the wrong track and disapprove of his handles of a number of issues so it's important for all 17 republicans to get out there and talk about jobs and the economy and differentiate their policies from the policies president obama that have really failed the middle class. >> maria, let me asked something
4:37 am
else to that. we saw the sellout of wall street this week 530 points on friday and a lot of the concerns based on what is happening in china. the manipulation of the currency, their struggles there. is what we are seeing in the stock market there on the floor bolster the criticisms we have heard from trump about china and really attract people to his message or do you think there will be any impact here? >> well, i think it actually does make people listen to him more about china because that is the one -- one of his big talking points in terms of criticism. but i also think that it underlies the fact that his supporters aren't really listening to the details of any of his policies right now. and he is using incredibly offensive language and it is language that is offending key constituencies across the country. the problem for the republican party is that the more that he rises in the polls, the more that he is seen as the standard
4:38 am
bear of their party, the more it -- the eventual nominee no matter who it is is not going to be able to get to the white house if they don't attract 40% of the hispanics vote. if they don't start closing the gender gap and with donald trump at the top, no way they will be able to do that. >> it's not just donald trump. i think one of the terms maria is referring to is the term anchor babies which has become part of the central narrative ace of late, referring to children of non-u.s. citizens born here in the united states. i want to listen to what donald trump said about that term yesterday and then talk on the other side. >> when jeb bush -- when jeb bush, who is totally in favor of common core, weak on immigration, right?
4:39 am
very weak on immigration. wants to let people come in. although now he is using anchor baby. you know, he put out a memo, you cannot use anchor baby now. because i used it, now he is using it. >> let's put the memo aside. we know jeb bush defended his use of the term anchor baby. lisa, most of the rhetoric we are hearing from jeb bush is abusive. why commit to that term? >> i think it hilarious that maria is talking about derooting the brand. >> let's go back to the question. >> and the other candidate -- the other candidate -- >> back to the question! hold on, hold on. >> lisa, the question is -- >> i will get to that. >> admitting to this term? >> i will get to that but i think that is a little ironic there. look. what donald trump is bringing up talking about the ending of birth right citizenship is something that harry reid once
4:40 am
supported. you remember, hillary clinton once said she was adamantly against illegal immigration in this country. look. i think what they are bringing up is the fact we do have a real problem in this country with illegal immigration. look at the border surge last summer that cost our country great deal financially and what democrats want to do is conflate the two issues between illegal immigration and immigration. we are seeing a problem with the illegal immigration in this country. look at sanctuary cities with the murder of that young girl in california and, most recently, in ohio. so we absolutely do have a problem with illegal immigration and it's important to talk about that subject. >> lisa, you know the numbers. you know the numbers that george bush got a larger percentage of latino vote than mccain did and a larger percent than what romney did. to take back the white house is it defeating the cause by using a term so many find defensive? >> victor, let's look at polls and the top issues that latinos
4:41 am
care about in this country. they care about jobs and the economy. going back to the poll from cnn the other day showing that the majority of americans, especially 58% of independents who believe, they disapprove of president obama and his handling of the economy. i think republicans have a real opportunity to talk about creating opportunities for all americans in this country, which is something that we have not seen from president obama and we will not see from hillary clinton and all of that will fall flat to latinos because of the offensive language that you're using. >> maria? lisa? thank you both. >> you want to talk about that because you don't have any ideas. >> thank you both. >> thank you, victor. >> i know we are going to commercial. i think they will still be debating during the break! certainly. new this morning, want to let you know we learning israeli plans to attack iran. not just once, but several times. what caused israeli to push the pause button on its plans.

4:45 am
new this morning, cnn is learning that israeli leaders were making plans to attack iran. israeli media is reporting that prime minister benefiting anyone netanyahu drew up plans to strike iranian military facilities in 2010, 2011 and 2012 but there was not enough
4:46 am
support and the plans were nixed. oren lieberman is in jerusalem for us this morning with reaction over there. what are are you hearing over there? i'm sure the reaction is split? >> reporter: there is a lot of buzz on this report that comes from israeli's chan 2 and a lot of that buzz is generated during the 2010 to 2012 time period in israeli there was a feeling there could be a unilateral strike on iran and their nuclear facilities and with this report we find out just how high level those conversations were. the strikes in 2010, 2011 and 2012 were nixed for different reasons. in 2010 because of the idf chief of staff, the military chief of staff said the idf doesn't have the operational capability to carry out a strike on iran. one year later, same plan called off for different reason. two high level ministers backed out of supporting the plan when they found out the risks and the potential loss of life. one year later, same plan called off for a different reason
4:47 am
because the israeli military and american military had a scheduled exercise which complicated trying to coordinator a unilaterally strike. the defense minister at the time tried to push back the exercise but too complicated to carry out a strike. the question where did this come from? this is israeli's channel 2 and obtained recordings from the defense minister at the time who would have had high level access and known of these plans and he said he supported the plans at the time. he tried to -- he opposed or tried to stop the recordings from coming out, but the sensor here proofed and that has generated quite a bit of buzz from the plans a few years ago. >> reporter: can that context concerning the iran nuclear deal on the table now, any indicators that there are plans in the works or that could possibly be plans ordered in the next short term, considering the opposition to this deal in israeli? >> reporter: the leaders i've
4:48 am
spoken with, and certainly is pretty broad opposition to this deal. leaders i've spoken with say everything is on the table, all options are on the table and they will tell you that includes a military option but the feeling is, and having responsible with analysts, they say now that this deal is on the table, a diplomatic deal, a military strike now is far less likely. >> oren lieberman in jerusalem for us, thanks so much. we are continuing our coverage of the major attack aboard a european train that was thwarted. three americans being called heroes this morning for what they did. we have got you some video from what happened inside that train. stay close. 80% of the poor in africa are rural farmers.
4:49 am
96% of them are doing rain-fed agriculture. they're all competing with each other; they're all making very low margins, making enough to survive, but not enough to get out of poverty. so kickstart designs low cost irrigation pumps enabling them to grow high value crops throughout the year so you can make a lot of money. it's all very well to have a whole lot of small innovations, but unless we can scale it up enough to where we are talking about millions of farmers, we're not going to solve their biggest challenge. this is precisely where the kind of finance that citi is giving us, is enabling us to scale up on a much more rapid pace. when we talk to the farmers and ask them what's the most important thing. first of all they say we can feed our families. secondly, we can send our children to school. it's really that first step that allows them to get out of poverty

52 minutes past the hour, a big win in the fight against isis. the white house issuing that a u.s. drone strike killed a high-value target. cnn's barbara starr has the details. >> reporter: isis' number two was killed this week in a u.s. drone strike near mosul, iraq. a stronghold of the terror group according to u.s. officials. a senior u.s. official tells cnn the u.s. had, quote, actionable intelligence on this man, haji mutazz. they knew he was in the vehicle when they launched the vehicle. critical intelligence as the u.s. is trying to collect every scrap of information on isis
4:53 am
leaders using overhead recognizance, eavesdropping and spies on the ground. haji mutazz is a long-time deputy to an isis leader. he was a top financeer. the white house called him the primary coordinator for moving large amounts of weapons, explosives and people between iraq and syria. he planned the isis offensive that overtook mosul in june of last year, iraq's largest city of nearly 2 million people and was the so-called pioneer of baghdad. barbara star, cnn, the pentagon. >> we'll talk more to retired general marks, how significant
4:54 am
is this so to speak? >> it's very significant. it's another step of how the united states and coalition partners are going to try to contain isis. this very slow bleed on the part of isis done by the u.s. and coalition forces is absolutely a good strategy and we'll see more of this going forward. so a very significant step. >> and what about the possibility they will be able to replace him quite seamlessly? >> sure. absolutely. this is an organization that has resilience to it as we have seen over the course of the last couple of years. so absolutely there's a next man up. somebody is going to step up. and this was a pretty capable guy. if you look at barbara's report, really significant. operational experience on the ground, both as a military guy, a chief financeer and how the
4:55 am
economy can sustain itself. so this is a big guy but others will step up with no lack of ideas. there are other folks who will step up. >> in relation to the air strike, they said actionable intelligence is what helped them locate him. how confident is the u.s. in progressing their ability to obtain intelligence about isis specifically? >> well, christie, that's the defining factor in terms of the united states and its ability to go after isis with precision and achieving results. the intelligence is multi-modal to involve signal intelligence, human intelligence, you bring those together to create a picture. then what we found in this case is that the information that became intelligence was potentially perishable, meaning it was actionable. it's good, we have it now and it
4:56 am
will be irrelevant if we don't do something about it now. what that tells you is the linkage between the operational arms in order to achieve the results. >> all right. major general marks, thank you. >> thank you, christi. we have new information about the attack that was thwarted possibly by three americans on board. there's a lot going on as you can see. we'll have it all in your next hour of "new day" that starts after the break. when you're not confident you have complete visibility into your business, it can quickly become the only thing you think about.

exclusive images here as americans take down a suspected islamist gunman on a train to france. this morning we see and hear from those men. and that's propaganda blasting for days at the loud speakers at the demilitarization
5:01 am
area in north korea. today they sit down at the table to see what can be hashed out. and battling raging wildfires out west. u.s. soldiers, even civilians are being called in to help out. good saturday morning to you. always good to start the day with you. i'm victor blackwell. >> i'm christi paul. we want to begin this hour with new details on the possible terror attack thwarted on that paris-bound plane. the suspect was carrying a coalition assault rifle and automatic pistol, several chargers and a box cutter. belgian officials have opened an an anti-terror investigation as they look into ties the suspect had to radical islam. in the meantime, cnn has exclusive new video for you. look at this captured by one of the men who took down the gunman. this is the aftermath of the vicious attack there. the suspect is on the floor, his hands tied behind his back.
5:02 am
at one point you can see the rifle that he carried lying in his seat. but there again is that suspect who they were able to take down. senior international correspondent nick robertson is following this story from france. nick, what do we know about the investigation into this thus far? >> reporter: well, we heard within the last couple of hours from the french interior minister who said several things. that the attacker, the gunman, is telling them he's 26 years old. a moroccan that lived in spain last year and lived in belgium this year. until the information checks out. they won't know that these are facts for shoe, but they believe the spanish authorities back in february of 2014 tipped off the french authorities that this man was on their radar. they were aware of him and his ties to radical islamists.
5:03 am
another european terrorism source told us that this man has ties to isis. the fact that he was living in belgium in year and the train was coming from amsterdam in holland through belgium, stopped in brussels and just before it passed across the border here into france, that's when the attack took place. it raises a question, did the gunman get on in brussels? that's not clear at this time, but it is interesting here that we have the belgian authorities also watching their own counter terrorism investigation into this as well. of course, the attack did take place on their soil, but the train coming to a rest in a station just across the border here in france. >> we heard earlier this happened. it's officially been classified as terrorism. do they believe there's another motive or are they just being very cautious in how to characterize this? >> reporter: well, the belgian prime minister called this a
5:04 am
terrorist attack. they say there's caution until they can get some clarification and check what this suspect is actually telling them. but the facts are this at the moment, that this man had in his possession when he was stopped from shooting, trying to shoot people on this packed passenger train at a peak hour late yesterday afternoon. he had on him a weapon with nine magazines. now the magazines for that weapon can hold up to 30 bullets each. so he had a weapon with potentially 270 bullet there is. he also had an automatic pistol, one round with that and a box cutter. so this man was intent on a mass casualty attack. that's how it appears at the moment. so given the fact that he has
5:05 am
this past track record or history and it is known to counter terrorism officials with ties to radical islam, that certainly is raising the very clear concerns of a terrorism attack. and the french have taken this suspect into questioning in paris to their external security headquarters in paris. >> and real quickly, nic, three people hospitalized. do we know their conditions? >> reporter: we know that this hospital here behind us, mr. stone was one of the first soldiers to move forward to take down this attacker. he was injured, cuts to his head, cuts to his neck, but it's his thumb that sustained we are told a serious injury. we have a hand specialist here who tells us he's been in surgery over the last few hours. we don't know if he's out from surgery yet, but we do know he
5:06 am
was brought here. we do understand that he was brought here to this hospital to get that surgery for his thumb given the best possible care that the french can give him at this time. >> nic robertson, great update and information for us. we appreciate it so much. thank you. let's learn more about the three american men being called heroes there in europe. of course, also at the white house. let's go to nick valencia who is standing by with details of the three men. no doubt they saved lives on that train. >> absolutely. the european officials are convinced this could have turned out much differently, especially when the gunman already fired several gunshots inside that train by the time the three americans were able to subdue him. we'll take you back to friday where this incident happened on a high-speed train traveling between amsterdam and paris, france. the three americans were in europe to visit friends and were sitting on a train when they see a train conductor runni through
5:07 am
the train carriage behind them. we are told the american spoke to reporters shortly after this incident for the first time describing what happened. >> i'm really proud of my friend that he just reacted so quickly and so bravely. he was really the first one over there. even after being injured himself, he went to go help the other man who was bleeding also. without his help, he would have died. that man was bleeding from his neck, like, profusely. and he just went over there and saved his life as he was bleeding himself. >> he ran a good ten meters to get to the guy. and we didn't know his gun wasn't working or anything like that. and spencer just ran, and if anybody would have been shot, it would have been spencer. and we are just really lucky nobody was killed, especially spencer. >> we are talking about spencer
5:08 am
stone. he suffered a major injury to his thumb. anthony sadler and alex scarlados are credited with stopping what could have been a major terrorist attack. >> nick valencia, thank you so much. >> reporter: you bet. breaking news out of the caribbean peninsula, new pictures to show you of the north korean military, here it comes, standing by apparently, ready to attack south korea if given the word. there they are. top officials from both sides are meeting behind closed doors to prevent this situation from turning out to an all-out war, but that's the scene near the border right now after north korea told the south to stop blasting anti-pyongyang propaganda near the border. the two sides exchanged fire and the u.s. is monitoring this closely as you can imagine. will ripley is live from beijing right now. we know that the allie is a
5:09 am
little disengaged, why is that? >> reporter: you're right, they are disengaged. china remains a major allie here. the president will be coming here for a military parade next month, but there's no indication if kim jong un will be coming here. we know china has been disengaged in previous incidents where north korea has been involved in flare-ups on the korean peninsula and china stepped in to ease the situation. all we are getting right now is a statement coming out from the foreign ministry. i'll read you a portion of it, quote, as the korean peninsula's close neighbor, china is paying great
5:10 am
the united states wants to see a full military conflict on the korean peninsula. the worst
5:11 am
in those meetings that are happen right now, you can bet that those key incidents, the propaganda speakers, the land mines, those are being discussed and the question is, is there going to be a concession made that will allow this situation to deescalate or will it escalate? will we see more military efforts like the training we saw earlier this week? >> will win lripley, we appreci your report. thank you so much. it was a huge show. tens of thousands turned out in alabama to hear donald trump's message as he said to make america great again. coming up, we're going to talk about the reaction to this event
5:12 am
and the impact and how, how did donald trump get 30,000 people there in their football staydiu. also, president obama is stepping in as the wildfire situation is growing more dire. we are going live to washington state, one of the hardest-hit states still ahead. and the dow down 531 points on friday ending a losing week. what does this mean for your 401(k)? i brto get us moving.tein i'm new ensure active high protein. i help you recharge with nutritious energy and strength. i'll take that. yeeeeeah! new ensure active high protein. 16 grams of protein and 23 vitamins and minerals. ensure. take life in. but your stellar notebook gives hanyou the gumptionlc. to reach for the sky. that's that new gear feeling. this week, these office depot brand notebooks just one cent. office depot officemax. gear up for school. gear up for great.

what do a nasca comedian... and a professional golfer have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® has also been proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. not this time. not with xarelto®. i'll have another arnold palmer. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve
5:15 am
or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. let's turn now to 2016 and the race for the white house. here's "sweet home alabama" with donald trump drawing a crowd of
5:16 am
30,000 in mobile. look. >> wow, wow, wow! unbelievable. unbelievable! thank you. >> one city official called it the greatest event mobile has ever put on besides mardi gras. meanwhile, during the stop trump spoke of recent controversies with his opponents and was joined on stage by alabama's senator who shared a few complimentary words. >> donald, welcome to my hometown, mobile, alabama. the american people, these people, want somebody in the presidency to stand up for them, defend their interest in the laws and traditions of this country. we welcome you here. thank you for the work that
5:17 am
you've put into the immigration issue. i'm really impressed with your plan. i know it will make a difference. and this crowd shows a lot of people agree with that. >> we've got with us now cnn politics reporter jeremy diamond. jeremy, 30,000, that's a beyonce number. you've got tens of thousands of people in this stadium now for a political rally. and it seems, not only is donald trump getting the crowd, but he's shifting and carrying the narrative in the primary race. >> no doubt about it. a week ago donald trump was at the iowa state fair also drawing big crowds. and then the next day he released his immigration policy proposal, the most detailed policy proposal he's released yet. and this whole week has been dominated by the trump narrative. but in a different way, instead of focusing on the rhetoric, it's been on policy and immigration issues. the other candidates were forced to kind of explain their immigration proposals and
5:18 am
explain whether or not they were given birthright citizenship and you saw that continue with the anchor baby term trump used. and others were forced to use or disregard it or to dismiss it altogether. so it's been a really interesting week and it's a momentous week for the trump campaign as they're kind of becoming a much more serious campaign in terms of policy and in terms of really defining the race, not just on rhetoric, but on policy grounds. >> well, whatever he's doing, it appears to be working. we'll look at the latest quinnipiac poll. trump is polling ahead of republican rivals there in florida. he's leading and that's where jeb bush was once the governor for several terms. four points ahead of him. we know that in texas he's leading both cruz and former governor perry there. i mean, what are we expecting to see, and maybe we have seen some of this already, in response as former governor scott walker and
5:19 am
former governor jeb bush try to shift for his campaign to fizzle out, but we have not been seeing that. >> bush in the past who has kind of tried to put trump aside to dismiss what he's saying, call out his rhetoric but kind of try to take that and pivot and move to the real issues that he wants to talk about, but this week we have seen a shift. we have seen him go after trump. in terms of his policies, they are wrong so that he's not a conservative. he's repeatedly slammed him this week for supporting democratic proposals in the past, like trump used to support single health care, for example, and before a jeb bush super pac flew a banner that said trump for higher taxes, jeb for pres. so we are seeing a shift there and scott walker was forced to address a lot of what trump was saying this week. kind of put into a corner as to whether or not he supported the
5:20 am
birthright citizenship question. we are seeing a shift where trump is not just being dismissed but seen as a real threat, i think, as pundits and political analysts and other campaigns realize the staying power of the trump campaign. >> yeah, he said that previous to this event at the news conference, i'm not going anywhere, folks. and i think the other candidates believe that now. jeremy diamond, thank you so much. >> thank you. well, take a look at what our friends in the west are dealing with. >> it's so sad. because i love where we live. i love the grandeur, the beauty, the wildlife. >> that's desperation there as the flames are rapidly spreading. the emergency measures now being taken to prevent more disasters. plus, are north and south korea on the brink of war? we'll ask the correspondents at the border there what leaders are discussing this morning.
5:21 am

you hear those winds there? that's what's happening in the west right now. one of the toughest seasons they have seen in many years. in fact, the governor of washington said there are 390,000 acres burning. this is an unprecedented catechism in our state. and we want to take you to stephanie elim following the latest developments. president obama approved an
5:25 am
emergency declaration to get more aid there. stephanie, what are you seeing this morning? >> reporter: good morning, christi. you're talking about a beautiful part of our country here burning. the western region of the country really feeling the pain from these fires. and here where we are not far from a beautiful lake, there you can see behind us, we have a road block here, there are evacuations in place, and that's because fire continues to rage. across the country for the 250 wildfires that are burning in 17 states. >> they are all extreme, they are all big, really bad and all over the place. >> reporter: 390,000 acres are on fire. more than 3,000 firefighters and 26 planes are battling the flames. >> it's all hands on deck, as you can imagine with so many fires, it's tough. >> reporter: on friday president obama signed an emergency declaration allowing federal
5:26 am
resources to move in. as firefighters work to save homes and evacuate residents from harm's way. >> they are committed. they are tired, they are working long hours, they are not getting sleep, they are getting chased from one house to another. but they are giving it their best and are doing a great job. >> reporter: what was once a three-story home here is left smoldering and reduced to ashes. >> i don't ever remember something like this and i've lived here my whole life. >> reporter: some of the evacuees are camped in a home depot parking lot. >> it's so sad because i love where we live. i love the grandeur, the beauty, the wildlife. >> reporter: with resources stretched thing, about 200 active duty soldiers from joint base lewis mccourt, have been
5:27 am
sent to help out at the firelines. and many are camped near their homes with boots and shovels. >> everything is stretched thin around here. this is what we do, we go out to protect our own, our friend, everything. >> we all come together when we have to. >> reporter: the state is mourning three firefighters who d d died earlier this week in twisp. >> you know the danger is always there. you just hope it never happens and when it does, it's tough. >> reporter: and right now it is cool in the 50-degree range. but during the day and throughout the week temperatures will be in the 90s to make it very hard to fight fire. combine that with the fact there's a stiff breeze out here and the fact that the western region is just so in drought that it makes it tough to fight the rampant fires right now.
5:28 am
>> thank you, stephanie, for the update. north and south korean officials are meet right now to figure out if there's a way to prevent a shooting war there on the peninsula. will they come to an agreement? also, apple is down, microsoft is down. the dow big board had a big hit on friday. 500 points in a single day, roughly 1,000 for the week. so what does this mean for you? r company's data is secure, the possibility of a breach can quickly become the only thing you think about. that's where at&t can help. at at&t we monitor our network traffic so we can see things others can't. mitigating risks across your business. leaving you free to focus on what matters most. uthis isn't the mostne efficient way for people

kim jong un gives the order to go ahead with war. what are we hearing there now? >> reporter: talks are happening behind closed doors and south korea's military is on high-alert from the provocations from north korea. but there's hope there may be a diffusing of tensions because the high-level people were able to actually come together and agree to meet at all. but the sticking point has been south korea has been refusing to stop broadcasting propaganda across the border. we'll have to see if anyone backs down because so far north korea is threatening to attack south korea. and south korea has been ready for that saying it will retaliate strongly if that does, indeed, happen. >> tell us about what the response and reaction has been there in seoul. because we know it's a huge city not far from the border. what has been the general
5:33 am
response? >> reporter: well, on one hand, victor, this kind of rhetoric comes from north korea often. so citizens are used to it. but it seems there are a number of factors playing in here. the joint exercises with the u.s. military, the land mine attacks, the propaganda warfare, this exchange of fire on the dmz. so it's getting a lot of play in the local media and people are aware of it. we have seen protests in seoul, but in the capital city many are going about their business. here where i am it's a different picture. we saw people being told to leave this area today because of the threat of imminent danger and other residents nearby have been evacuated from the towns that they live in because they are close to these high-risk areas. so there certainly is a lot of fear, a lot of concern. and a little bit of hope that maybe something just might come out of this meeting that is still going on, victor. >> kathy novak there along the dmz watching it closely.
5:34 am
thank you so much. meanwhile, escalated tensions, the heating rhetoric and the true brace for war, how have things gotten to this point in the korean peninsula? here's the latest from tom forman. >> reporter: the dmz is 160 miles long and cuts through the korean peninsula. and despite being called a dema demilitarized areas, it has 160,000 feet to the south as a border for war. now we have seen new skirmishes and the latest point of contention is this, the high high-level speakers they are using near the border. consider the power of the messages here.
5:35 am
they can reach six miles into the north during the day. by night, 12 miles when the sound carries thinger. the messages sent recently are sharply critical of the northern leadership. sometimes they use defectors to call out to their former countrymen. and the north feels powerless to do anything about this in terms of the quid pro quo. because even though they have their own speaker systems, their's only carries about a mile and in some cases that doesn't get them across the dmz themselves. that's one of the reasons the north reacted so badly to the use of this technology and said that will have to stop or this will keep escalating. >> we'll talk to cnn military analyst major james marks. and the author of nuclear showdown "north korea takes on the world." general, we'll start with you, we are talking about kim jong un
5:36 am
in regards to the fact he's a mystery to some people. nobody knows how far he might go, but do you see this as perhaps him wanting attention as he's known to want when the world is so preoccupied with isis and syria and iran? >> you know, christi, thank you so much. what we see on the north korean peninsula is not new. the north korean regime has always fought attention and always been provocative. so what we see in the north is behavior that we have to take very, very seriously. but at the same time we understand what they are trying to get. what they are trying to get is concessions. if they act poorly and if we can now collectively, the u.s. has a large military presence and the south korean military is extremely professional. we are completely linked. if we can get the north koreans to back off, we therefore will give them concessions. so this is behavior and a pattern we have seen before. and a key thing is, i think the short answer to your question is, there's very little that we know about kim jong un other
5:37 am
than through the behavior we have seen the last several years with him in charge. >> you're right, gordon, these countries are sitting down with leaders together and that's quite rare. what do you think the conversations are that they're having? and they have been meeting now for, as i understand, three hours. how long do you think this will take? >> reporter: i don't think they will come to an agreement today but i could be wrong. they will be adjourned and have important discussions. the important thing is kim jong un won't attack south korea today. because the united states and south korea are at a high level of readiness because of the guardian exercises. these are going to go on for another week or so with other countries. and that means the united states right now is prepared for anything that could occur. so i think that essentially we will see a little bit of drama
5:38 am
but these are going to carry on for a little while because kim jong un is trying to milk this for all its worth. >> we have some new pictures in from the last hour of some military forces who are apparently congregated now along the dmz here. so that's soming into us here. there they are, this is on the north korean side, as i understand it. major general, we see this and now south korea is urging all residents that live nearby to evacuate. is that normal? >> it is normal. this is a matter of routine. this series of exercises that gordon referred to takes place annually and throughout the year there are other exercises. this is really the culmination of a number of exercises working their operations plan for the potential invasion from the north. so this is kind of business as usual, but clearly it's such a tinderbox. north korea has such a huge army. south korea is incredibly ready
5:39 am
and it is all around the dmz. so caution has to prevail. i think the key thing in terms of what pyongyang has to worry about, look at the pictures of kim jong un sitting around the table with his general offices. what do you see? you see this young leader on one side of the table in a confrontational pose and all of his senior leaders are sitting there furiously taking notes. there's little collaboration. this is a big problem for north korea. and i think the big challenge that seoul worries about is an implosion. when north korea finally gets done with this, they have to absorb 25 million north koreans that have not known a normal life in quite some time. >> gordon, really quickly, if there's no reconciliation, what is next? >> i think there's going to be similar tension. but at the end of the day, i think the real problems are in north korea with the regime tearing itself apart. and every day there's peace on the korean peninsula is a victory for south korea, which is just getting stronger. and the regime in north korea is
5:40 am
getting weaker. >> all right. gordon chang and major general marks, thank you to both of you. >> thank you. you've seen this by now, but markets around the world were hit by a massive sell-off, including the u.s. the dow jones down 530 points for the day, more than 1,000 points for the week. how does this affect your bottom line?

my psoriatic arthritis i'm caused joint pain.o golfer. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. and i was worried about joint damage. my doctor said joint pain from ra can be a sign of existing joint damage that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage.
5:43 am
enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common, or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic. all right. there is -- there are the
5:44 am
pictures i should say, but what a tough week for the stock market. the dow jones plunged 531 points yesterday. more than a thousand for the week collectively. this is the worst week sell-off since 2011. we'll talk to the u.s. markets editor for "the financial times." thank you so much for being with us. when you first saw collectively the numbers here at the end of the week, what was your first thought? >> well, we knew it was going to be a bad week, but we didn't know how brutal it was going to be. quite a lot of people were engulfed at some point during the day. >> european markets are experiencing the market misery. do you think that we're looking at a real global economic problem that could be long-term here? >> well, the interesting thing is i think in recent years, in the u.s. because of the financial crisis or in europe because of the european crisis,
5:45 am
in germany the emerging markets and the developing world have been fighting back but this time it's an issue in russia and brazil where the other countries are struggling. it will be interesting to see if we have a rerun. you have had a crisis before, in 1998 half of asia went bust. this time asia and the developing world are half the economy. >> so a lot of people may be looking at this to say, you know what? this may be a good time to put more money into my 401(k). to that what do you say? >> i think people should be careful. i should that the market is indicating for the market to fall again on monday, quite hastily so. at some point it will be time to save up a bit more money, but right now i think people should be, yeah, saving for a rainy day. stick it in the bank account. >> stick it in the bank account.

two people are in jail after protests turn violent in north carolina. many protestors are outraged that a jury could not reach a verdict against officer randall kerrick. this case from 2013 became part of the national conversation about the killing of unarmed black citizens by police. let's talk more now with somerville's mayor, joseph kertatony. we have a huge black lives banner here, there it is, draped across the somerville city hall. you had this put up on wednesday. explain why. >> well, the banner is more than a statement. it's an affirmation of our community's values to uphold the
5:51 am
equities for everyone and their treatment and service in a public institution. and affirm our role in the important national conversation. it's also a question that we're asking ourselves, what should we be doing? have we done enough? and what role do cities play in ridding the public institutions of racism? >> we have heard the words are nice but people are looking for action. what actions come behind your answer that was there and the banner that is sitting in front of city hall. >> yes, i think that's important to keep in mind. words are nothing without action. and the action is self-vigilance and examination, which is humbling and difficult to ask ourselves and really self-examine our institution, but an important one that we'll do. so whether it's new or against training, anti-racial training or not, the police department
5:52 am
and all the agencies, a community-wide conversation, people need to understand that this is going to be a community-wide effort from the city of somerville, not just the police department. our hope is that the private institutions will be involved as well. those are just some of the steps. >> i'm sure you would expect there's been some criticism. one person saying the banner excludes everyone else that is not black, doesn't it? another one tweeting, what should be celebrated is all lives matter. what is your response? have you heard anything like this there in somerville? >> yes, we have. and i want everyone to understand, whether you agree or don't agree for that reason, we are fighting for all lives. and, of course, all lives matter. and we're in a country with a long troubling history, racial history, from slavery to mass
5:53 am
incarceration, which is a new jim crow. and i find that when people make that argument to default to push against all black lives matter because we're being accused of unfairly saying everyone that wears a badge with being racist. that's not the point, of course not every individual or every officer is a bad officer. we are very proud of our law enforcement. and the statistics don't lie. the images that you're putting up, the videos you're showing, in our countries statistics show that black americans are just disproportionately arrested, jailed and charged. they are disproportionately killed by those entrusted to enforce the law. so it's a harsh reality to face. and it gives us a trumpet to do that. but we should hate this inconvenience or injustice as
5:54 am
much as we hate the inconvenience. >> joseph curtatone, thank you so much for being here. we'll have a conversation about a baseball player sentenced for sexual assault. and the question many are requesting, why did the university green light his recruitment if they knew about his history? nk no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like shopping hungry equals overshopping. everyone loves the picture i posted of you.

well, baylor university says it is conducting an investigation or will do so into the school's handling of a football player who was found guilty of sexual assault into the program. >> the question here is, what did or didn't the team know and when? >> right. and that's the question. that's why there's an ongoing investigation in this story continuing to develop. now he will be placed on the
5:59 am
team but he was dismissed from the team in 2013 before violating unspecified rules before playing to baylor. the head coach never gave a reason why but maintains he was not aware of his past, including the sexual assault allegations. meanwhile, he has released a statement saying maintaining a central and caring environment is heart to the baylor organization and at the heart of our students, faculty and staff. he still had a year of eligibility to play football after graduation according to ncaa rules. so guys, as of right now, everything that we know and like i said, the story continues to develop. >> the expectation that baylor looked past these instances and to bring him on because he's
